Senta Cemeteries 2016 – 1

Scroll this

Senta is a multi-ethic and multireligious town in now Serbia (former Yugoslavia). The majority is Hungarian (catholic), and there is a large Serbian Orthodox community. The vivid Jewish community was almost completely destroyed during the Holocaust. The turbulent history and present day situation are also reflected in the town’s cemeteries. I first visited the cemeteries in 2009 when visiting friends in town. See post here

This time I only visited the two Hungarian burial sites (the Saint Anna Cemetery and the Town Cemetery). As it was Easter a lot of relatives were there to clean and visit the graves with plenty of daffodils!
